Used to like frog legs-uncle had a marine exports business-heard that the cajun community has that as a delicacy-frog legs are banned in India-but if am coming to the U.S anyway in 4 to 5 years time -would like to taste it-guess frog legs banned from 1979 or 1980 onwards-please comment is it expensive-and what recipies available.☺p vinod

Lots of the seafood restaurants sell frogs legs. Taste like chicken. I buy mine whole from a market in Reserve La. and they are much larger than Chinese frog legs. I make stews, fry them. The fried ones are mostly sold in restaurants and they are usually small legs. You also may enjoy alligator. It has a bit more gamey flavor. Turtle soup is very famous dish in New Orleans. The turtle is the most expensive out of all these meats per pound.

In all my Frog’s Legs dishes, can only remember having them Fried (Deep, or Pan), or Sautéed, but with different spices/oils. When we hunted them, and prepped them, simple Pan-Frying was our norm, but we were more sophisticated hunters, than chefs...

When we were not so fortunate (say much if the Winter), my mother would buy frozen Frogs Legs, imported from India. Nice size, and good taste, for having been frozen. She got those, into the 1960’s.

I do not see them in enough menus (whether in New Orleans, or Paris), enough to make recs, but I find them different from Chicken, and usually better.

Seems that last time I had them in NOLA was on a Tasting Menu at Restaurant August. Last time I had them, though, was the Tasting Menu at La Folie, in San Francisco - tasty, but also tiny! Would guess imported from Asia?

Good luck,

Hunt

am from India-my uncle-my guardian for a few years used to have a marine sea food export business-used to have froglegs-when I went there in 1979 used to have it-think that was the last year it was available-its been banned since then in India-guess people like people for ethical treatment for animals dont like that.☺
